Weird request (but there is so much knowledge residing in this group,  
I told my friend I'd try asking):

Does anyone out there know of commercial sources of Saffron Crocus  
bulbs (Crocus sativus) that are in the Southern Hemisphere (Australia,  
South Africa, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, etc.)? A friend of mine  
wants to purchase somewhere between 1000 and 10,000 bulbs to plant at  
a farm in the southern hemisphere and doesn't want to have to attempt  
switching hemispheres. (Unless the wholesale price of Dutch bulbs is  
so cheap that, even with losses, it would still be cheaper to do that  
than buy them from a southern hemisphere source.)
